St. Johns County School District receives funds from the state to assist in funding instructional literacy coaches. The district provides additional funds so that every school has an instructional coach. In order to receive the state funds, the district submits our Comprehensive Reading Plan, which is available online for any district.
The district conducts a visit to each school to confirm that the Comprehensive Reading Plan is being followed with fidelity – that appropriate and effective reading instruction is occurring at each school. The directors for elementary and secondary instructional services visit classrooms at each school for this purpose during the second quarter. Feedback from the fidelity check is provided to the school and can be used to improve instruction in English/Language arts.
